Dance away in Hip Hop, take a break with Yoga, or improve your agility in Boot Camp. We offer a wide variety of group fitness classes for every fitness level. All classes on the Group Fitness Schedule are included with your membership. While the majority of our fitness classes are designed to be multi-level, please read through the class description before selecting a class. Our experienced instructors will always offer options so you can personalize your experience.
You can sign up a week in advance and up to 15 minutes before the class starts. You are not required to sign up before the session, but pre-registering will guarantee you a spot in your chosen class.
Participants that register on IM leagues will receive check-in priority. If “registered participants” do not arrive at least five minutes before the class starts, their placement in the class will be given to a participant in the standby line. Check-in begins 15 minutes prior to the class start time.
In order to prevent injury or medical emergencies, you are not allowed to enter a group fitness class five minutes after the class has started. This is to ensure you receive appropriate warm-up for each class and do not disturb the class that is in session.
